Your right on the viral nature of the GPL however the limitations are on
the programmer who adds code not on the end user...
Also the GPL only grants rights taken away by copyright
BSD grants more rights than GPL and dosn't offer restrictions to those

There are reasons behind the GPL but if you don't agree with them
the use BSD liccens...

For me however I only liccense my software to premote "Free software"
in the "rabbid totalitarian" way the GPL dose it...
